Shoveling Sidewalks

Did You Know?

  • Large appliances such as refrigerators, washers & dryers may be placed at the curb for pick-up.  Refrigerator doors must be removed for safety.
  • Bird feed, litter, pet food, animal droppings & bread crumbs left on the ground will attract rodents.

  • Between the months of May and November, any person owning or occupying land within the City must destroy any and all noxious weeds taller than twelve inches (12”). This applies to vacant properties as well. If a noxious weed is found to be taller than twelve inches (12”) on a vacant property, that property may be mowed and billed to the property owner by the City.
  • Residents are responsible for keeping sidewalks free of snow. A city ordinance requires all sidewalks to be shoveled in a timely fashion. This is for pedestrian safety and to ensure mail delivery is not delayed. For more information, call the Code Enforcement Department at (248) 796-4140.
  • An option for older residents or those physically unable to clean their driveways and sidewalk is the CHORE program. This service is available to residents who qualify under the program’s income guidelines. For more information, contact the Career Center’s CHORE program at (248) 945-5100.
